2017 PF T-Shirt Contest!

Our annual T-shirt contest is back for a 2017 edition! This year, we're going to keep things simple:

Theme: cameras, lenses, and/or photography, incorporating the PF logo (download here) - let your imagination rule

Deadline: July 31st August 6th, by the end of the day your time

To enter: post each submission in a reply to this thread, as an attachment (be prepared to e-mail a high-res version if you're a winner)

You can choose to enter as many designs as you'd like.

Prizes: Each winner will each receive two free shirts shipped to their door, plus a Loyal Site Supporter forum account upgrade

Requirements and restrictions:
  • Important! Your design can't have more than 10 colors (preferably fewer), so avoid the use of photos
  • Only the central area on the front of the shirt will be printable. We can't print on the sides, above the neckline, or on the sleeves
  • Unedited photos can NOT be printed - you must either vectorize the image or reduce the number colors
  • Your design must include the Pentax Forums logo. You may alter the colors or make minor changes / additions
  • You may use specific Pentax product names and product logos (i.e. K-1, K-3, etc), and traces of official product photos, or any product photo found on PF's homepage
  • You may not use any other photo or work subject to copyright, without permission
  • You may not use the official Pentax logo font (type out Pentax instead)
Once we're closed to submissions, we'll have members vote to select the winning designs. We plan to pick two winners, but may opt for more if there are many exceptional designs.

I'm very excited to see what you guys will come up with, and I'm sure many other forum members are, too. Good luck and let your imagination go wild!

This year, we will continue T-shirt production through Teespring, who we've been very happy with since they were able to slash global shipping costs.

To get you started, here are four top designs from last year:

Here is mine. I did the 5 axis illustration as there are so many features unique to just Pentax because of their 5 axis mechanism.

Added a text version

I don't know if the original illustration is copyrighted. It appears on many sites besides Ricoh's. Also I've altered the original significantly.. I don't know if that changes copyright?
I believe this is a press photo, and we have received permission to use such photos so you should be good.

@Adam do you have a larger version of that K-mount t-shirt design? I don't see it in the for-sale items, but I would like to see the design

pdf is attached to this post

My several attempts to get my humble design to appear in a post have failed. All I've been able to do is have it appear as a downloadable attachment (as with this post).

It is a pdf.

Best wishes to all entrants!
